I picked up a spinning wheel this last fall and started spinning. Not the excercise class with stationary bikes; wool. I started spinning with wool through a class that I took as an evening adult education class given by the local college. I’m having a blast! I’ve wanted to spin for a very long time but I was never able to find anyone to teach me or that had a wheel to borrow. Our new area had a Fiber Art Fair in September. Oh, that was a bit of heaven. People, critters, and fiber everywhere. I got to play on a wheel there and proceeded to buy one. And then I signed up for the class. 4 weeks later I was spinning and had become part of a spinning/knitting group. — I’m teaching myself to knit now too.–
4 months later I’m going to start putting my hand spun yarn in a shop that is opening in February. I’m going to take the plunge. At least with a skein or two and see what happens. I have a ton of research to do, a name to come up with, a logo to come up with, and pricing to do. I’m excited. This should be lots of fun.
